Eh? Does that mean that my Greek licence which was renewed last in 2016 has to be renewed again before the due date in 2019?
How did Mr policeman know he had been here over 6 months? Great this technology stuff.nigeljackson5 wrote:I am looking for advice from the "Experts" on this Forum
A friend of mine, who has lived in Crete for over 10 years, was stopped by police last week
Upon inspecting his licence, he was told that after living over here for over 6 months & 1 day, he should have exchanged it for a Greek one
He was issued a fine notice for 10 Euros, and told to produce his documents at the Police Station. The fine should have been, according to the policeman, 100 Euros, but as my friend was unaware, he had "taken pity" on him.
Is this correct, as no one I have spoken to, knows anything about this ?
